Hi all,

I am running Rhino 5 32-bit and madCAM 5 on a Pentium 4 with 2G RAM. It is dreadfully slow, and the simulation crashes Rhino every time. So, I think I need a new computer. What's the minimum you would recommend re: specifications?

Hardware:
Dual-Core processor. Quad-Core with 8 calculation threads is recommended.
4 GB RAM. 8 GB or more is recommended
OpenGL 3 capable video card recommended. (Nvidia Geforce seems to work best)

OS:
Windows 7 or 8 - recommended

If it is slow, you can try with two calculation threads.
You can set the number of simultaneous calculation threads from madCAM options.
If setting more threads than the processor can handle, it will be slower.
